    you are adding to scripture. Give me the book, chapter and verse that says God calls being overweight sin and calls for a sacrafice or confession of such. Also show me the guidlines that God gives for what constitutes being overweight.

    hey saved, how about this from the bible: Avoid foolish questions, and genealogies, and contentions, and strivings about the law; for they are unprofitable and vain. "<Titus 3:9> or, this: DO NOT spend time on stories and long lists of names in family history's. They bring argument. They do not help God's work. Some have missed the point and talk uselessly. They want to teach the law, but they don't even understand what they're talking about. <1 Tim 1:4-7>

    Now I suggest that you study the bible since you clearly do not understand that passage.

    That is what the Bible says. End of debate.

    ladies and gentlemen, my aunt... and now you've made her righteous indignation rise to the surface the same way Jesus drove the money changers out of temple. I love that!

    me too... i dont' think same sex marriages should be recognized... but that's not to say they shouldn't be free to still be "gay"... or something like that.

    For those who follow the ways of God they seek laws against the lifestyle as well since He calls for them.

    Everyone has the right to choose their sexual orientation. You can't outlaw being gay.

    But when gay people want to "marry" so called and have it be called like straight marriages, want benefits for doing so, wanting to adopt children, and have their lifestyle seen as okay by everyone, well short answer. NO!

    Sure we can outlaw homosexuality. This nation did it in the past when its leaders and people used look to God for their guidence.

    You can't stop the homosexual behavior or "disease" of it. You can say that its illegal, people will still be that way.

    Being gay should not be outlawed anyway.

    If we followed the ancient teachings of the Bible for law we'd have a blood bath. If the list I've been given is correct then we should kill:
    -Unruly or rebellious child. Deut 21:20-21
    -Those who curse or hit their parents. Lev 20:9, Ex 21:15
    -Worshipers of other gods. Deut 13:6-11
    -psychics, witches. Lev 20:27, Deut 13:6-11,Ex 22:18.
    -Those who do not believe in Jesus (parable).Luke 19:27.
    -Those who work on the Sabbath. Ex 35:2
    Moses kills a gentile for this. Num 15:32-36.
    -Those who are accused by at least two people
    of wickedness. Deut 17:6.
    -The children and babies of enemies. Num 31:17,
    Deut 20:13, Psalm 137:9, Lev 26:29.
    -Adulterers. Lev 20:10.
    -Homosexuals. Lev 20:13.
    -A woman who is not a virgin when married.
    Deut 22:13-21.
    -Those who are careless with murderous livestock.
    Exodus 21:29.
    And we haven't even mentioned the main sins yet (murder, rape, theft etc).
    As a non-believer I still disagree with same sex marriages, but what consenting adults do in the privacy of their own home is their choice. Same sex marriage, and adoption is a strange family to bring a child into. My feeling is that its just really unnatural to lust after the same sex. I don't think it should be punished, but I also don't think it should be supported.

    If we followed the bible we would not have a nation and people in the gutter. People who reject the punishments of God for their actions reject God. Plain and simple. By the way. It would not be bloody. Once people learned the law meant business most would not get into those fixes.

    Deuteronomy 20:21-22 And they shall say unto the elders of his city, This our son is stubborn and rebellious, he will not obey our voice; he is a glutton, and a drunkard And all the men of his city shall stone him with stones, that he die: so shalt thou put evil away from among you; and all Israel shall hear, and fear.

    This passage is about a rebellious child who is sinning. His sins are drunkeness, the excessive consupmtion of alchohol, and gluttony, the excessive consumption of food and drink.

    Proverbs 23:20-21Be not among winebibbers; among riotous eaters of flesh: For the drunkard and the glutton shall come to poverty: and drowsiness shall clothe a man with rags.

    Once again, gluttony is associated with the sin of drunkeness.

    Philipians 3:18-19 (For many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ: Whose end is destruction, whose God is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame, who mind earthly things.)

    Those who allow their stomachs to rule their lives are destined for destruction.

    Finally, even without these express warnings against gluttony, "What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's" (1 Corinthians 6:19-20).

    Overeating is a sin on so many levels. Gluttony has been explicitly mentioned. It is clearly a form of greed to regularly eat more than you need. Obesity is a slow form of suicide. Virtually every aspect of ones health is harmed by obesity. Those who overeight regularly lust after food and have cravings that they do not resist buy simply give in to.
